Bridging The Gap

Pedestrian have been hard at work the last couple of weeks delivering our Bridging The Gap programme, a project supporting a young transgender group from Leicester LGBT Centre.  Bridging the Gap is a two-week programme that started on Monday 7th August.  The first week focused on music and media, and was lead by Pedestrian tutors Jenny Hibberd (musician and spoken-word performer), Akshay Sharma (rapper, beat-boxer, poet, artist and graphic designer), Boston Williams (poet, musician and spoken-word performer) and Dean Leivers (photographer and music tutor).  They were joined at the end of the week by Jade Pearce, a singer, actor and performance artist who was on hand to provide an introduction to singing lessons.

This week delivery has focused on creative writing and theatre, with sessions at The Curve lead by actor and musician Katie Burchett, poet Jess Green, and Paul Rogers, who is Artistic Director of Scufflebox Theatre Company.  On Wednesday afternoon the young people will join the Made at Curve productions team to visit a reahearsal of the musical Sunset Boulevard, and on Friday afternoon they will end the project with a showcase of their work performed to invited guests including family and friends.

Pedestrian would like to thank all the participants, artists and tutors, as well as staff at The Curve, for helping to make Bridging The Gap a big success, and we look forward to doing more work with Leicester LGBT Centre in the future.
